Going Bigger Produces

I changed tactics for my winter fishing last week. With the warming weather, I decided to go with bigger plastic so I went with a 6 inch Slug O (see photo at left) mounted onto a quarter ounce jighead. My thinking was that it just might attract some bigger fish. Also, with the warming water, the fish tend to be more active and more aggressive.
That move has paid off. In the last week, I've landed fish on every outing with most of the fish going 24-28 inches with several keepers in the mix (see photo at right). The only small one that I got was that "breakfast" fish from the previous post. Maybe there are more fish around. I like to think the change in tactics has done the trick.
